Press release

Red Hat announces Morphlabs as first Certified Cloud Provider in Philippines

Red Hat collaborates with Morphlabs to enable world-class open source enterprise cloud solutions

Manila

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced Morphlabs as the first and only Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider in Philippines. This agreement will enable Morphlabs and Red Hat to provide emerging market customers with a world-class open source enterprise cloud.

“Morphlabs has been a pioneer in cloud computing technologies and OpenStack in particular. Collaborating with a global leader like Red Hat is the obvious choice to provide service efficiency. As a Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider, our customers can enjoy the flexible models that support various guest operating systems (both proprietary and open source) and all workloads from single-tenant on-premise environment to a multi-tenant hosted private cloud, with multiple datacenter locations.”

Gio BacarezaCEO, Morphlabs

As a Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider, Morphlabs will provide Red Hat's product offerings on Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. Customers can now rely on Morphlabs to extend Red Hat’s OpenStack and open source expertise to deploy, implement and manage OpenStack-based cloud infrastructures.

According to the [1] 2014 IDC Annual Continuum Survey,“almost 60% of the companies in the Philippines will be more aggressive in their IT expenditure in the coming 12 months compared to a year ago. This would translate to a 20-45% overall increase in total IT spending." Red Hat's collaboration with Morphlabs, an accomplished leader in cloud solutions, is aimed at contributing to increased customer confidence in building out such industry-standard and world-class cloud infrastructures.

Red Hat's Certified Cloud Provider designation is awarded to Red Hat partners following rigorous validation by Red Hat. Each provider must meet testing and certification requirements to demonstrate that they can deliver a safe, scalable, supported and consistent environment for enterprise cloud deployments. The Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider program provides customers, ISVs (Independent Software Vendors), and partners with the confidence that Red Hat product experts have validated the solution so that implementations can begin with a solid foundation.
